    Any Navman, check them on the net, they have excellent models in your price range

    I always used Navman, most have the ability to upload europe maps, add on live traffic updates ect.

    They're easy to use, large touch screen compared to something like a tomtom which tend to be really small but a bit impracticle.

    I have a Palm TX (£100 ebay) with TomTom 6 software on it.. paired to a gps receiver (£20).

    its amazing :) all the fun of a pocket PC and sat nav as well.

    Ditto, although mine resets itself during long journeys but soons sorts itself out.
    Still recommend it.

    hi mate i'd suggest a garmin nuvi 250..these are the dogs.they were originally created for guiding ships at sea
    so the manufacturers have massive experience with them,you can also find them for under £100.. and have
    downloadable discs to update regularly.....

    hope this helps......mark..

    You'll do well with pretty much any that you chose, wouldn't bother with the new MP3 and computer inbuilt ones, a satnav is a satnav.

    You might want to turn the sound down though if it's got that scary woman voice! :(

    Tom Tom One. Think carefully about the XL version (or any large Sat Nav for that matter) - remember it will spend most of its time obscuring your vision.

    I have absolutely no problem using or seeing the standard size. Bear in mind that a lot of the time you're just listening to the instruction with only the occasional glance at the screen.
